Crystal 2 Pro in SCPH77003
Crystal 2 Pro in SCPH77003 –
I have just installed a crystal 2 pro into a SCPH77003. This is the slimline pink PS2. the PCB is GH-051-12
I installed it using the GH-051-02 points as I was advised this will work.
I am having the following problems.
Insert original game, turn on PS2 - get menu with memory card and cd to choose from
Insert backup game, turn on PS2 - get same menu
Insert original game, turn on and press reset 6 times - game boots
Insert backup game, turn on and press reset 6 times - get sony warning saying to insert an original game.
My question is:
Do I need to burn a CD of the tools for the modchip before it can be used at all, or should the modchip work fine right from day 1??
"Insert original game, turn on PS2 - get menu with memory card and cd to choose from"
there is a problem with the install if that is happening also ..
Unless the firmware and BM haven't been installed which I'm assuming he didnt because of this comment

so the crystal pro will not boot originals in its factory state ? did not know that , never tried though . i just assumed it would ..
Thanks for your comments.
To confirm, NO, I have not reflashed the bios in the Crystal pro. It seems I have a stack of about 50 blank DVDs, but no blank CDs so have to go out today and buy.
I was advise of my success after trying to run the boot cd
Could someone please confirm for me the following:
I used the GH-051-02 diagrams to install in a GH-051-12 motherboard. When comparing the zoomed in locations between motherboard and diagram, they are identical.
Has anyone else installed in a GH-051-12? If so, which diagram did you use?
Unfortunately i can't post a url yet (need to post 15 times) so this will look a bit funny, but I used the image at:
I went out and got some good quality blank CDs.
Both alcohol and nero only let me burn at a minimum of 8x speed.
I burnt both the hacked image and also the official CC upgrade image to cd and tried to run them.
With the modchip turned on I get the menu with the option to go to the browser. I go to the browser and it says disc cannon be read. This happens with both CDs.
With the modchip turned off I get the please insert an original PS2 disc screen.
Any ideas which lines I should be checking on the modchip? I thought I checked them all for continuity and bridging but I'm going to go out and get a magnifying glass today so I can see a bit closer.
Yup its for sure an install issue. What does the diagnosis LED report?
When I turn it on, the led comes on for about 2 seconds and then turns off.
I'm told this means that the bios wires are correctly installed
